Hopefully I can get my how I shot this photo up.. You will laugh at all the make shift gimics I used.. But post processing, open raw,adjusted white balance, uped exposure a tish, bumped contrast up, viberance up a tiny bit. Open edit PS,flipped image so dpc read correct, levels used black picker to readjust color level, tiny more contrast, converted to b/w, reduced size auto sharpen once, reduced again, high pass .03 soft overlay light... saved for web..

After much help from wise Grog I may have figured out how to do this..
My light that I used on putor screen was a GROW light LOL and notice the book stack with the poker chips on top.. Well I couldn't get into my models eye with my reg tripod and limited space, soo all the stack and toped off with poker chips to make camera perfect eye level..I was belly down on the desk not breathing...

Spending way too much time checking your scores. I see you are experiencing some burn-in.

The challenge is reading mirror-reversed text. Okay -- it's kind of cool.
